after only 24hrs the crt will still have loads of current sitting in it. enough to kill or seriously mess you up at least. a crt has to be unplugged for at least a couple months before it will totally lose its built up current.
its doesn't seem like you really know whats up (no offense) so you shouldn't go poking around inside. you need to put this project on hold and do a bunch os research.
